New rule (he who runs the bog makes the rules!)

Since feedback is king, we gotta do something to make you guys tell me more about how you think that I am doing.

So, I’m going to get your attention by hitting where it hurts. I’m going to make it tougher to get music.

(Sound of trumpets)
Number of tracks posted from now on is a function of comments

(Sound of cheering at this wise decision that could quite possibly solve all ills, bring about world peace and maybe, just maybe lead to an all “Sponge Bob” channel.)

Did I hear someone ask “what does that mean?”

Good question. I’ll break it down.

0-5 comments = 1 track in the following week.
6-10 comments = 2 tracks in the following week.
11-20 comments = 3 tracks in the following week.

and so on. And yes, I know the last 10-20 rule literally does not add up but rule #1 is he who runs the bog makes the rules! I also deliberately kept what happens after 3 tracks vague so that I do not wind up posting 400 tracks here at some point . . .

And, no, 2 comments from the same person don’t count seperately so don’t bother trying.

So, one track today to kick off this new season.

Last week, I wanted to post Matata’s Talkin Talkin but someone beat me to it so this week, you get “I feel funky“.

East African rhumba circa 1970/1980 Matata – I Feel Funky

Matata - Afrorock

 + African music: someone has got to preserve this stuff.

 + One more link department. Some of you may know that I am a deep sound/deep house affectionado – if you feel the way I do about this genre, try out this mix at Prescription World

    Hi Steve!
    Just wanted to say how much I appreciate your postings and I quite often end up playing something you have introduced me to at my monthly global sounds club night! Matata should go down well!
    If you are ever in London come along to the Flying Carpet. mail me for details if you want.

    Thanks Alex, I am glad you are enjoying the music. Next time I am in London, I will be sure to pop in and catch some sounds.

    Look out for some more 70’s afro-funk/afro-rock just after the New Year!

    – Steve
